GRANNY’S FUNERAL (L’ENTERREMENT DE MÉMÉ)

FRIDAY, MARCH 1 - 7:30PM
SATURDAY, MARCH 2 - 5:00PM

Although he made no effort to see his grand-mother in her waning years, a pharmacist must now deal with her funeral arrangements. This is awkward enough, but nothing like his emotional swings between a wife he can’t quite part from and a lover he can’t quite commit to, in a comedy stamped with the Podalydès brand of caustic, Gallic wit. With Valérie Lemercier, Isabelle Candelier, Catherine Hiegel and Benoît Hamon.

BRUNO PODALYDÈS | 2012 | 100 MINUTES

Live Post-Screening Q&A with Audrey Tautou

The late French master Claude Miller’s final film elegantly adapts François Mauriac’s modern classic of a woman’s growing resistance to her suffocating marriage, and showcases a remarkable Audrey Tautou as the disturbed titular heroine. With Gilles Lelouche, Anaïs Demoustier, Catherine Arditi.

JOURNAL DE FRANCE

TUESDAY, MARCH 5 - 5:00PM
FRIDAY, MARCH 8 - 5:00PM

Raymond Depardon’s brilliant self-portrait (co-directed by his longtime collaborator and sound engineer Claudine Nougaret) takes a surprising point of view on the great documentarian’s life—not only as a filmmaker, but as a photographer of expressive precision, capturing the entirety of French society over the decades. The patience of this imagemaker’s practice is testament to an alternative to the hyper-fast, instant delivery of digital images that now dominates the culture.

RAYMOND DEPARDON, CLAUDINE NOUGARET | 2012 | 100 MINUTES

TUESDAY, MARCH 5 - 8:00PM * *
Live Post-Screening Q&A with Director Alice Winocour

FRIDAY, MARCH 8 - 2:00PM

Based on a true case, writer-director Winocour has adapted the story of a progressive 19th century doctor/therapist and his unusual patient into a study of personal wills, hidden desires and reversals of fate. A maid who suffers from seizures is sent to a mental hospital, where it seems she’ll be condemned for life until Professor Charcot finds in her the possibilities of testing his advanced notions of the sources of so-called “hysteria.” Soko as Augustine and Vincent Lindon as Charcot deliver astonishing performances.

ALICE WINOCOUR | 2012 | 102 MINUTES

RICH IS THE WOLF (LA RICHESSE DU LOUP)

ONE SHOW ONLY
THURSDAY, MARCH 7 - 4:45PM

Perplexed at the sudden disappearance of her husband, a wife watches hours of videotape that he’s recorded over the previous seven years to piece together some clues. Odoul’s most daring feature, whose color and black-and-white images are culled from his own videotaping, confirms his place as one of France’s genuinely exploratory filmmakers.

DAMIEN ODOUL | 2012 | 82 MINUTES

THE SUICIDE SHOP (LE MAGASIN DES SUICIDES)

FRIDAY, MARCH 8 - 7:30PM
SATURDAY, MARCH 9 - 5:00PM

Master filmmaker Patrice Leconte makes a startling and unforgettable departure from his previous work with this whimsical animated 3-D musical about a family business offering certain special “end-of-life” services. Rather than succumbing to a purely mordant perspective, the movie switches course and mood, driven by the family’s perpetually happy child whom they can’t control. Based on the novel by Jean Teule and with the voices of Bernard Alane, Isabelle Space, Kacey Mottet Klein, Isabelle Giami, Laurent Gendron.

PATRICE LECONTE | 2012 | 105 MINUTES

YOU WILL BE MY SON (TU SERAS MON FILS)

SUNDAY, MARCH 10 - 5:30PM * *

Instead of grooming his son to inherit his lucrative wine-growing business, an imperious vintner (Niels Arestrup) looks to a talented California-based grower, rendering a harvest of jealousy and worse. Legrand’s narrative takes on Shakespearean qualities, driven by a titanic performance by Arestrup, while the film’s observations on the wine-growing business are thoroughly engrossing.
